This article recalls the effort of Carry Nation to address alcoholism in Texas in the early 1900s. Nation was born in Kentucky but came to Texas at an early age. She believed that rum was the root cause of all ills, so she went to the source, attacking liquor stores and bars with bricks and a little hatchet. Despite her reform efforts, at last report people still drank at the University of Texas.
